This is a great place to find answers, and I just spent a few hours getting educated, but found yet more questions to be answered. I am looking to order new service from either D* or E*. Would like to find out what I am getting if I order the following from D*: - Total Choice + local channels (Denver) + Setanta - hookup to 2 TVs (2 rooms) - 1 x SD DVR - 1 x SD receiver My setup at the house: - Two rooms wired with one line each, SD TV's for at least the next couple of years. I'd very much like to avoid adding any lines, but I'd certainly prefer to have dual-tuner capability on the DVR. From what I understand this may be possible via signal stacking. I am also not ordering any international channels initially (except for Setanta), but would like to have that option later without a need for upgrading hardware at that point if possible (thinking of Jadeworld). Questions: 1) Per the postings here, apparently it is possible to stack the signal so that only one line is needed per DVR for dual-tuner capability with the right hardware. Does that preclude the use of a multi-satellite dish? If I have to purchase a stacker, can I expect the installer to supply one or is it cheaper to get it online and have it ready for the installer when he arrives? Is he going to charge me extra for labor? Can I do the stacker install myself? 2) What are the model numbers of the receiver, DVR, and dish included in the standard package? Can't find this basic info anywhere on the D* site. 3) Will I be able to add international programming later without a hardware upgrade? Will this possibly require a second dish, and if so, would you recommend that be installed now with the initial install? What's the estimated expense? 4) Concerning the lease, if I want to cancel service after say, 3 years, will I be expected to take down the dish and send all equipment received back to D*? What if it is no longer in working order, will they hold me liable for any repairs? Just trying to figure out what I am getting myself into I am still not set on either provider, but the answer to these questions will make my decision easier. One thing in favor of D* right now is the Setanta channel not available on E*. I am looking to have service by the start of the World Cup, and the German commentary would sure be nice. On the other hand, E* is cheaper with the current $100 discount program. I like the programming on D* better and also the fact that you can drop premium packages after 30 days without an extra charge. Also, the hardware supplied by D* seems more dependable. I've also posted this at the E* section to get feedback from that side. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
